Will You Open The Door?

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Revelation‬ ‭3:20‬

Jesus is alive, real, and draws people to Himself (knocking). We must put our faith in Him to receive forgiveness of our sins and be cleansed of them. This results in eternal life! It is such an amazingly simple thing, probably the most simple thing in all of existence: to trust in the God who literally created your soul. Yet, it can be so hard to get to that place of full surrender and faith. Why?

Because humans tend to trust in what they can see, and disregard what they cannot see. Our tendency is to trust in the tangible and reject the unseen and spiritual. Because of our sinful nature, we suppress the existence of God in our hearts because we can’t see Him, and put all our trust in humanistic ideologies, theories, ideas.

We all do this, every single human being. Until we come to a place where we acknowledge that God is real, He is who He says He is, and we do what He requires.

Thankfully, God is so incredibly amazing that He requires very little from us, because He Himself did all the work. He came down from Heaven, lived the perfect life we couldn’t live by following the law perfectly, and died for us a tortuous and painful death. The death that we deserve. All He requires from us? Our trust. Our faith in Him.

It takes one moment, one act of faith that sets your soul on a secured path to heaven. He is drawing you, and you must respond. This decision of whether or not a person opens the door to Jesus Christ will be the because decision in our life, and it has eternal consequences.

God is so beautiful, even though people deny Him and are children of wrath (before a person is born-again they are a child of God’s wrath) even though people deny Him and reject Him, He is still ready and willing to have a relationship with those who turn to Him! All it takes is faith in Him.

It’s as easy as letting go, humbling yourself and surrendering to the Almighty God. And when this happens, you’ll have a close, intimate, unending relationship with Jesus Himself! He’s waiting and knocking at your door, He wants you to open to Him, repent and trust in Him.

Once that door is open, it can never be shut and the Lord will keep you close to Him forever. You’ll be covered by the blood of Christ and born-again, your soul protected before you die and you’ll be taken to heaven after you die. There’s nothing greater on this earth than that. Open your door to Him (faith) and you’ll experience salvation for your soul and the true love of Christ. ♥️

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.” Romans 1:16-25♥️

You Were Created for God

You were created for God.

Let me say it again:
You were created for God.

This is too much for our hearts to hold inside of us. The glorious King of the Heavens and Earth specially and specifically made you, for Himself.

Is there anything more wonderful??

If you belong to Him, He made you with purpose and for His glory. You are a vessel of His affection and His mercy. He chose to set His love on you and it’s not because you ever loved Him, but because He first loved you.

He f i r s t loved you. You were c r e a t e d for Him.

Let the deep inexpressible joy of this truth fill you and bubble within you to overflowing. There is no greater joy than being His. No greater joy than knowing Him. No greater joy than having His mercy set upon you. And we’re not the only ones bursting with joy.

The King is so enthralled by us and our beauty (being clothed in Christ’s righteousness) that He sings over us! He has gladness of heart that He saved us by the blood of His Son.

There. Is. Nothing. Better!

Meditate on these truths this morning. Let it fill you with joy and satisfaction and let it compel you to offer your day to Him as a poured out, pleasing, aromatic sacrifice.🌷🌤

{1 John 4:19}
We love him, because he first loved us.

‭‭{Romans‬ ‭12:1-2‬}
Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Deeper in God 

This is my heart’s cry: Father, Abba, my Saviour, the One Whom my soul loves! Take me  d e e p e r.  I desire to go deeper into the depths of your love. I want to drown in your living waters, your rivers of delight. You are such a precious God and I want n o t h i n g more than to serve you and glorify you and love you and lay at your perfect feet.

Let me go deeper into fellowship with you, deeper into communion with you, deeper into trusting in you, deeper into walking with you, deeper in my obedience to you.

D e e p e r.

D e e p e r.

M o r e.

Brothers and sisters in Jesus, let us never reach a point where we’ve had enough of God. Let’s stay burning hot for Him all of our days! He is so worth our passionate devotion and our hearts on fire for Him.

If we abide in Him, we will be delighted in Him. Because we can’t be delighted in Him without abiding in Him! And when we abide in Him, we go deeper with Him. When we are delighted in Him, we are on fire for Him. So let’s delight and abide.

He’s so  w o r t h y,

He’s so  w o n d e r f u l.

The depths of His love are
i n c o m p a r a b l e.

Let’s drown in His warm embrace and go deeper.

{Psalm 36:8}
They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house;
And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.

‭‭{Psalms‬ ‭42:1-2, 7-8‬}
As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. Yet the Lord will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.

Worship God and Only God

Worshiping and loving Jesus edifies our soul and fills our hearts.

Many who are disconnected from their Creator do not realize this, but loving God h e a l s us. Because we were made for Him and we were made by Him. We need Him.

Refusing to worship Him and love Him actually damages us. Why? Because human beings were made to worship; and, if we’re not worshiping our Maker, we’re worshiping  s o m e t h i n g  else. Something that is unworthy of the worship of our hearts. Something that we should not be worshiping.

Alcohol, money, fame, possessions, attention, family, excitement, beauty, drugs, work, sports, food, comfort, hobbies, education, intellect, sex, self, other human beings, false gods and idols made of human hands.

These are just a few things that humans will latch on to if they aren’t clinging to the One who breathed the breath of life into their lungs.

Worship is  a n y t h i n g  that takes the highest precedence in our minds and hearts. And if it’s not God, then it is something created, which will ultimately damage us in greater ways than we can imagine.

But He heals us. He makes us whole. He forgives us. He makes us new.

We’re broken without Him. There’s no way around it. No matter how good and full one’s life looks like on the outside, we are utterly broken and lost if He do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ, the only one who is truly worthy of our worship and praise.

Go to him and find true fullness and wholeness and healing and love.

When you find Him and experience true freedom, you won’t be able to do anything b u t worship and praise the majestic, delightful, worthy God of heaven.

{Exodus 34:14}
For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

{Matthew 13:15-16}
For this the people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

{Genesis 2:7}
The LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

His Love!

17156238_1052494138190708_1629458721296209111_n.jpg

His love, oh His love. I could sing about His love all day and all night.

His love makes me exhale into a warm puddle and it makes my heart want to burst all at the same time.

His love is so perfect that it has the power to calm our fears, give us perfect peace in every situation, make our chest flutter with joy, heal us and make us whole. His love is that powerful.

His love is powerful enough to save us from hell and gentle enough to whisper sweet words of comfort in our ear.

His love is rich enough to satisfy the human soul altogether, with all our cravings and longings.

His love is the ultimate treasure to those He loved before the foundation of the Earth. We were loved by Him and existed in His mind before we were e v e r conceived. Before our parents and grandparents and ancestors were conceived. And when a human heart falls deeply into His love, His heart becomes the ultimate of treasures.

His love is powerful enough to remove our sin and the consequences of it if we come to Him. His love is powerful enough to save us from Himself and His wrath.

His love calms our fears. His love makes us alive. His love frees us. His love lifts us up. His love carries us through this life and into Heaven.

His love is so intense that He was compelled to come to this earth from the throne of majesty and endure torture, beatings, ripped flesh, and blood poured out. For us.

There is no greater love than the love of God.

If you haven’t yet, will you accept His love? If you already have His love, never cease to treasure it more than your own life because it is more worthy than your own life.

Love the LORD your God with all your heart, your soul, your mind, and your strength.

This is the purpose of our existence. Nothing else will ever matter. This is the reason you have breath.

Be Still and Know our Warrior

14051813_887254114714712_2893549542636814207_n

Be still and know that I am God.” {psalm 46:10}

These are God’s words to us. They’re so full of assurance and comfort. Of protection and leadership. This means to let your soul trust him. Soak each line in slowly:

be s t i l l 
and k n o w
that
H e  i s  G O D

To do this is to let go of trying and striving and KNOW that He is God and He WILL take care of you. You’re precious and a treasure in His sight and He overlooks nothing. It’s to know that He is invested in your life and nothing escapes Him. To know that your God is sovereign and in control. He fights for you and He delights in doing it.

To be still is to curl up into Him, letting your heart unravel before Him as you share with Him all of your concerns. But also being still in trusting that when you open your heart to Him and surrender yourself to Him, that He is God who is active in every aspect of your life and He is ordaining our steps. Even if at times things aren’t happening exactly the way we’d like or feels like He’s not doing much, being still and knowing that HE IS. He is. And that’s enough to know.

He wants you to keep trusting Him and know that He has plans for you. He wants you to keep turning to Him even when things don’t work out ideally in our minds. Being still is letting it fall into place without worrying, knowing your God goes before you. Letting God handle the situation and having peace about it.

{Exodus 14:14}
“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

He is compassionate and also a warrior. He so delights in tenderly loving us and fiercely fighting for us.

I Just Want to be With Him

14021556_885658361540954_4214709855004362449_n

This world is beautiful, and I love living here. I love the life God gave me, and He satisfies my soul. But the closer I get to Him, the less appealing this world is. He makes everything else seem so dull in comparison. Just being in His presence hits me with such delight, joy, and a taste of Heaven; but all the while simultaneously experiencing a greater and deeper feeling of discontentedness in this world. Though He fully satisfies and fills me, there is this other part of me that becomes more and more dissatisfied and uncomfortable here. The more satisfied I am in Him, the less satisfying this world is. It’s a strong tension. Because I am both already a citizen of Heaven, but also living on earth. This world is not my home, and it only gets more and more apparent in my spirit.

This truth allows me to let everything go here, and give my whole self to God while I’m walking on this earth. I fully realize that I am here for Him and Him alone, for His purposes and His pleasure, and that I will one day see and experience all of the pleasures in eternity. This world may seem like it provides so much enticing gratification, so much of which seem difficult to let go of, especially for something we cannot tangibly grasp at this time. But just because we can’t see Him, doesn’t mean He’s not real. Nothing on earth could ever compare to the pleasures of being in God’s presence in paradise forever – the place He prepared for those who truly love Him.

If everyone had a momentary taste of what they could have in Heaven if they ask Jesus to be Lord over their life, every single person would let go of false treasures and fall to their knees before God and never be pulled by this world again. But that’s not what God wants. He wants our love and devotion because we want HIM and not a ticket to Heaven. We can’t see what God’s people are in for once they pass from this world to the next, but it will be unsurpassably beyond our wildest dreams. Thankfully, during my lifetime on earth, He allows me to escape into His arms.🌙💛

I just wanna be with Him.


{John 17:24}
“Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am”

{Philippians 3:20}
But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.

{John 17:16-19
“They do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.“

He Owns the Skies, Yet He Wants me

14088688_884991508274306_7598335271585425142_n

It sounds too good to be true. However, this is the purest truth that we can know. He is the majestic Creator full of divine splendour and love, full of beauty and grace, full of mercy and compassion. He’s the imminent, omnipresent, omnipotent God who, if we took a glimpse at Him with our naked eye, would be too much our minds to handle. We would go mad if we saw Him for just a fraction of a second.

Thankfully, in Christ, He cleansed us of all unrighteousness and made us holy and blameless in His sight. We’re His saints. His people. And as we are continuously growing and being sanctified here on earth, we will one day be fully in His presence, perfect and full of glory. We will be like Him, equipped to see His glory. In this fallen world, we’re not able to see Him.

But, thanks be to God, we can experience His everlasting full presence, closeness, communion, and relationship. Though we can’t see Him, we can see Him in the way He loves us. We can see Him in everything He made. Look at the skies, in a splendour so great it leaves us in awe. The One who owns the skies wants our hearts, and He will pursue us for our devotion. He will guide us and allure us to Himself, where He will tenderly bring us into oneness with Him. I am so thankful that he allows us to enter into an eternal, loving relationship with Him. He is sky-mazing.


{Hosea 2:14}
“But then I will win her back once again. I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her there.”

{1 John 3:2}
“We know that when He comes and is revealed, we will [as His children] be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is, in all His glory.” Yes, something that sounds too good to be true can indeed be the most piercing truth there is. Piercing like a double-edged sword

{Hebrews 4:12}
“For the word of God is living and active and full of power. It is sharper than any two-edged sword”

We’ll be swept away from this place one day by the most beautiful, loving, enchanting Being in existence.

Song of Songs 2:10
“Arise, my love, my fair one,
And come away.”

Our Thirst for God

14063989_883831341723656_5627061374244093867_n

There is a deep thirst in our soul that only God can quench. It is unquenchable by anything else.

We thirst for the true God. We thirst for the One who made our hearts. We thirst for our Creator, our Saviour, our everything. We thirst to be close to Him.

And until He quenches that thirst, we will only to continue to thirst.

Once you encounter the living God, and experience the Spirit of Jesus and His presence, no longer will you thirst. You will be drinking from the water of life. No longer will you be satisfied with anything lower than Him. All other things in this life becomes blurred like a wet black and white painting on a canvas, and ALL you can see is Him: clear, bright, shining, glorious.

As your eyes of love cut towards Him, He’s powerfully moved by you. He drinks in your love and feasts on your worship. He feels deeply for those who belong to Him. And His feelings are of intense love. Once you become a new creature, baptized with the fire of the Holy Spirit, you will never again thirst for anything less than God Himself. Nothing else can or will ever satisfy! He is it. We receive from Him, and He receives from us. Separation ceased, we become one with our God in sweet everlasting relationship.

Only God can give us exactly what we need perfectly, and oh! How He does it so completely and with master skill.👑💕

{Psalm 42:2}
“My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.“

{John 4:14}
“But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) continually within him into eternal life.”

{Ephesians 2:4}
“But God–so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and INTENSE love with which He loved us,”

{Zephaniah 3:17}
“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

{Song of Solomon 6:5}
“Turn your eyes from me; they overwhelm me.”

Faithful and True

14102420_883126585127465_317479140540092407_n

Do you realize that there is way more to this life than living, working, going home, doing the dishes, driving to and fro, errand running, grocery shopping, hanging out with friends, getting heartbroken, getting car insurance, watching tv, eating popcorn, going out to eat, piling up money, attaining career goals, and cutting the grass?

There’s just more. Immensely more.

Before I came to Christ, I honestly didn’t know why I was here. Everything was a big mystery with no solid answers, such as we evolved from apes and we have no meaning. I would honestly wonder why I’m even here. What’s the point? What’s the point of doing anything – like reaching goals, doing the dishes, and planting a garden, if we’re just going to die and cease to exist. There seemed to be no purpose behind anything. We’re just here, life formed out of nothing, with no ultimate purpose, and then we die, leaving it all behind, having no clue why we even existed.

But there are more answers than we think.

This feeling in our lives of no purpose or true meaning is a sad and dreadful place to be. I was there. Until God came into my life, then it all changed…and it changed more than I could have ever imagined. I received purpose. Meaning. Love. Salvation. Fullness. Security. And I received an inheritance of Heaven and God Himself.

There is no bliss greater than a soul lovingly in God’s tender hands.

We don’t have to put all our hope in this world, when there is a greater hope, a greater promise for the world to come. One that will never end. And one that is better than this.

His promises are real and secure. He is a faithful God who is true in all he does.

{2 Peter 1:4}
“For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.”

{Revelation 19:1}
“I heard something like a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God;”

{Revelation 21:4-7}
“and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Then He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be their God and they will be My children.”

If you love God, just know that your life has more meaning than you could ever comprehend. You belong to the Creator, and you’re going somewhere beyond our wildest imaginations. We are free to let go of this world and chase after Him.
